I’ll admit, I’ve been slacking on my ‘back roads’ project. It’s often difficult to find time and motivation to take a leisurely drive. Some days I am much more curious than others. But today—today, I was inspired. Driving home from my internship in Madison, Ga., I was captivated by this endless field of hay bales. I decided there are patterns all around me, and I need to wake up! It’s ‘bout time I opened my eyes (hence the name of my blog).
